to have this grand bargain. we go to war, we don't pay. we do big pharma, we don't pay. tax cuts, we don't figure what it's going to do to the economy, but you, you might have to pay for it. there is one senator prepared to filibuster to protect social security, medicare and medicaid. senator bernie sanders will join me in a moment, but president obama, he went to capitol hill today for a closed door meet wg the democrats. senate budget chairwoman patty murray, she revealed a plan with new revenue and spending cuts. nearly $1 trillion over the next ten years. president obama will meet with both parties on capitol hill. meanwhile, chairman paul ryan unveiled his budget plan and listen to how ryan describes republican priorities. >> the most important question isn't how we balance the budget, but why. a budget is a means to an end. an end is the well being of the american people. >> the most important question is how we balance the budget and making sure it's not on the backs of working americans. congressman ryan also made an unfortunate slip. >> this to us is something we're not going to
, workers who don't earn enough to pay taxes even. and so there was a lot of anger that got generated. and i think it also generated a lot of motivation. i know that our people got more mobilized as a result of that video. and i'm sure that others did. and i think that what scott did, and i think his strategy was flawless. i think what he did with no prompting by anybody but him thinking it through, he wanted those that couldn't afford the $50,000 dinner to be able to see the real mitt romney. and the others that got scott upset is that mitt romney was talking about himself being a job creator and then he saw what mitt romney was doing in china buying these factories at bain capital. and he saw that as a complete sort of contradiction of what mitt romney was trying to portray. i think in the sense that mitt romney helped the obama machinery show what romney really was about, i think it was if not a game changer darn near a game changer and i think america owes scott a big debt of thanks. >> well, he is a hero in my opinion and a lot of americans on social media are saying the same thing. it
's earth why a republican want the interest of of protecting him or herself to vote on taxes? why? because they make more voters angry by cutting medicare. they get means tested? give me a break. so this odd republican will raise taxes and make his somewhat better off voters pay more for healthcare? no way. so we really don't have to even get to the democrats, liberals, progressive but for the sake of candor here, why, again, on this god's earth would a good democrat want to have his or her name on vote to either cut or means test medicare so that they could then go and raise taxes? i just don't get why people keep talking about a deal. that no politician out there worried about his or her reelection or renomination would ever want to make. watch. it will take a few weeks, maybe a month or two on the truth on what i'm saying will shine through. and the sequester won't seem so bad after all. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts now. >> good evening americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. tonight, for the first time anywhere
taxes. my discussion to lower taxes is not appealing to them. i'm not going to draw them into my campaign like those in the middle. >> mr. romney, at that point wants you to put out the full tape. what is your response to that? >> let's do it. i was on the phone with david at the time. i asked him to blur out everyone else in the room. i only wanted romney to be seen. i really only wanted romney's voice to be heard, too. in a way, i felt it wasn't fair to the people in the room. i only wanted his voice, but he came out and did this press conference. frankly, my reaction, it looks like he's a broken man. that was my impression. his hair was a mess. his face contorted. he's as stressed as you can be. he doubled down on it. he said it's a message i'm going to continue to take forward. he didn't back up from it at all. then he did. he specifically asked that i release the whole thing, called it a snippet insinuating it was taken out of context. so, at that point, if he asked for it, i decided i would give it to him and said david, go for it. >> it was a motivator for you? >> yeah. >>
. he never met a tax cut he didn't like. we used to argue about all his tax cuts. but he had in his heart and soul a deep hatred of ray schism. nobody had any doubts about where he stood. he would have called an audible right in that room. all right, you're not going to remember lincoln. that's a long time ago. think back to somebody like jack kemp who combined conservativism with a real sort of concern about justice and equality. >> what does it say, benji, jack kemp, that's not that long ago. we're nostalgic, until even a bush -- what happened that they're so far right that the republican party has no sense of what the mainstream is concerned about? >> this is one of those problems when you don't have a clear leader. when there was president bush, he never got credit from liberals at the time, but he was keeping a lid on this stuff. bush was a believer in a lot of kemp. his passion in addition to conservativism was derived from kemp. without that, first there were no leaders and you just had the tea party movement rising up and and then a lot of these leaders are in the conservati
responsible is of course, you had the bush tax cuts. then right after, you had the attacks on september 11th and you had the war on afghanistan, which i supported and almost all of the members of congress did, because those were the people that attacked us. but then, you had the war in iraq and both afghanistan and iraq were fought as quote emergencies, which means they weren't included in the annual deficits. so, now, when they're talking about a budget that cuts student loan programs for gi members, people coming back from iraq and afghanistan now they're not getting their student loans. because this was all fought off budget. i think that's political malpractice on the part of the republican party. they should have budgeted for this. >> well, from a congressional physician of the soul like diana degette, thank you so much. now to dr. james peterson, msnbc analyst and director of africana st studies. professor, millions oppose the war, but as you know, and i'm sure you remember, their voices were significantly marginalized. give us a sense of how that happened. >> there's a lot of context
and for a fair tax wage. but if they did something like that, you know that would make them democrats. >> in light of what senator turner has already indicated here, the rnc outreach is a $10 million and evangelical thrust there. it's not the money, it's the message at issue here as senator turner has said, isn't it. >> i think it's more than just the message. ultimately, what they're saying is we want to win at any cost and we're just going to tell you what you want to hear. and it's more about showing us. and i think michael steele said it best when he said you can go into the communities, but it's not just about showing up. you can show up anytime but it's about what you do. and their actions are not measuring up. they're saying one thing and doing another. so it's more than telling us who you are, it's about showing us. they're wanting to disenfranchise black and latino voters. they are the party of the rich, and that's not what we are about. so it's really more about show me rather than tell me. >> given what they've already indicated, what would you do if you were sitting on an
